What if our houses grew with us? To answer this question, Tomasz Broma of Poland conceived a slow-life manifesto founded on architecture that can be built, dismantled and reconfigured by its inhabitants, following a set of six straightforward rules. The scheme accommodates mistakes and changes, charting a creative process for bootstrapping a commune in stages, with the end result a seven-storey village on stilts. Broma’s rules determine the size and position of cubic modules within the complex, giving each household equal access to amenities; ground-floor common areas would include the workshops and tools for future residents to prep their building materials.
